I find the type of fishing is more important than the species. The line I fish Stripers from the surf is not the line I fish from the boat.

Stripers from the Surf:
I love the RIO Outbound shorts, not much accuracy needed here but fighting the wind and getting 80'+ is very important or you won't clear the wash.

Stripers from the Boat:
Back bays and shallow water a floating line is fine, 30'+ calls for a heavy, fast sink line.

I'm new to Reds but after my Nov trip I'll have some first hand info for you.
